We bought four sheep in January as a small start to see if keeping sheep is something we want to do. As they were dropped off the previous owners mentioned that we'll one day look out our window and see little lambs running around our yard. We were confused because we only bought ewes with no plans to breed them. Our faces must of shown our confusion because the previous owners explained further; they didn't keep good track of which of their ewes got pregnant last Fall, but they knew rams had been with the ewes we purchased.
As the weeks went on we noticed two of our ewes, Mable and Hettie, are pregnant. We were actually excited because it didn't take long to learn that sheep will definitely be part of our life for quite some time.
Last week Mable had twins—rams—and they are so cute!
Gavin is the gray lamb, and Pip is the all black lamb. Welcome ram lambs!
